“A year changes you a lot.”
Do you ever stop to think about what your life was like a year ago? It’s crazy how much your life can change in the matter of a year, sometimes just a week (or less)!
I’m an advocate that you can do anything you put your mind to. People always complain about not having time. But time is relative and time is valuable. You don’t know what will happen with your next breath- your next move- your next drive – nothing in this life is guaranteed and that’s the cold hard truth.
SO much has happened in my life in the last year. There were times where I didn’t understand why I was going through what I was going through. I try to hide the bad things in my life and focus only on the positive. You hear “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” and these words are so so so true.
One year ago I read a book called “The Four Laws of Financial Prosperity”. (If you’re looking for a way to save money and want a book that is easy to read for non-finance people, read this!) There was something that stuck out and has been my whole purpose over the last year: A goal that is not written is just a wish. Mind blown. Literally. When is the last time you actually wrote something down? And I’m not talking about a sticky note reminder to do something. I mean ACTUALLY wrote something- a goal? You probably can’t remember.
Challenge: Before you go to bed tonight write something down that you want to accomplish tomorrow and see if you do it.
I put a whiteboard next to my bed so I see it when I go to turn off my alarm in the morning. Everything I’ve written down I’ve accomplished. (You have to keep your goals realistic, btw)
I think my main point for this blog post is that life is what YOU make it. Embrace the change and know there’s a reason for it. Have goals and you’ll feel good about yourself throughout all the changes. Seriously…change is NOT that scary. If you focus on the positive things that come out of change in your life, it will help you overcome it.
I could keep going on and on, but I told myself this post would be shorter than my last, even though it’s been far too long since I’ve posted. I think I’m going to write my next goal down to post more frequently. (PS- on my white board this week I wrote, “write a new blog post…quit putting it off.” And well, here I am….) 🙂
